    ADD & Mastering It! From the team of comedians behind the ground breaking documentary ADD & Loving It!?! comes a new, entertaining and empowering film. Patrick McKenna and Rick Green make it clear that there is much that can be done to not just manage this disorder, but turn it to your advantage. The program goes through 36 practical tips for managing one's ADD or ADHD.
    The program is fast and funny. As adults with ADHD Patrick and Rick keep it light. The 36 Tips are specifically chosen to be ADHD/ADD-friendly. What works for most people is often counter-productive for ADDers. For example, meditation is challenging enough for the average person; for the ADDer it's daunting. But experts explain "the walking meditation," and Rick shows how to seize small moments throughout the day to recover and relax. Some of the tips are simple tricks that help focus and motivation: Choose Your Distraction, Chunk It Up, Keep Stuff Together.
    Backing up Patrick and Rick are many experts, who explain the neurology and psychology of this condition. The list of experts is a who's who of psychiatrists, psychologists and authors. From the opening moments of the film the viewer will be laughing and engaged - because that's how ADHD/ADD folks learn best.
